We have been spending a lot of time in our garden of late. Tidying up and planting blooms and veggies to enjoy through the winter months. One of the many questions I get asked, is about my signs that I have scattered throughout our garden. So when the opportunity to jump on board a fun Trash to Treasure Outdoor Addition Party Hosted by the very sweet Kimm from Reinvented, I thought I would join in all the fun and share my Simple Vintage Farmhouse Pallet Garden Signs. Who doesn’t love a good party right?
Simple Vintage Farmhouse Pallet Garden Signs
It amazes me at how a bit of trash can be turned into a treasure. Just like this pallet that my hubby picked up off the side of the road! He truly brings home the BEST treasures!!
- One pallet or scrap pallet wood left over from previous projects.
- Crowbar or wood wedge
- Drop Saw
- Picket Fence Fusion Mineral Paint
- Paint Brush
- 120 gritsandpaperr
- Transfer paper
- No 3 Round Brush
- Americana Lamp Black
- Wax to seal
From the Raggedy Bits Project Barn
Step 1 – If you don’t have any scrap pallet wood, see here for the best way to pull apart a pallet. To make these signs I had a few scrap pieces left over from my Pallet Bath Caddy project. So I was lucky that I didn’t have to cut any of the pieces down to size. This would be where if you wanted a particular size that you would use your drop saw to cut to the required size. Using your sander, sand back the pallet pieces until smooth.
Step 2 – Using your brush paint the pallet pieces. 2 coats should do the trick.
While you are waiting for the paint to dry, you can start designing your words that you would like on your sign. I like to use two different fonts to add some character to the signs. You can use word or publisher to make your signs. Just make sure that your words are wider than the pallet! The possibilities are endless!
Step 3 – Once your paint is dry use your sander to distress to your liking. Then using your transfer paper trace on the words to your pallet piece. Grab your round brush and black paint and fill in your words. Let dry and then distress lightly. Wax to seal.
And there you have some super simple vintage farmhouse pallet garden signs to add to your garden! Be sure to check out below what my adventurous blogging pals have been up to with their trash!
Hope you enjoy making these just as much as I did.
